Hall in Tirol

Hall ranks mostly as a holiday resort, but the Old Town, with much of its original architecture intact, bears testimony to the town’s former glory. The symbol of Hall is the twelve-sided tower, known as the Mint Tower, of Burg Hasegg. This castle, with its beautiful inner courtyard, once formed a corner section of the town’s fortifications. It was the seat of the Tyrolean rulers and, in the 16th century, it became the mint. Today the castle houses the town museum. In the Old Town, the Town Hall with its steep Gothic roof consists of two parts: the 1406 Konigshaus (Royal House) with a beautiful debating hall with exposedbeam ceiling; and is a large building on the south side of Oberer Stadtplatz, with a Renaissance portal and a balcony from which the town fathers used to make their proclamations. The 14thcentury Nikolauskirche, the church of St Nicholas, nearby, has a lovely portal featuring the Sorrowful Christ, the Virgin Mary and St Nicholas, and an attractive Baroque interior. Particularly worth seeing is the Waldlaufkapelle, which is closed off from the rest of the church interior by a wrought-iron grille. It houses a collection of reliquaries.
